    wing tubes on a 102" Komet

    Hello,
    I have a Joe Saitta fibreglas Me-163 kit (102") which I recently purchased from another RC builder. I am just trying to familiarize myself with the plans and the construction methods I will need to use . There are few instructions with the kit. Most is pretty straight forward but in looking over the wing construction it appears that there are circles outlined in the root ribs which would indicate a spot for wing tubes. I was going to put them in any case since I would have no way to transport the plane.
    I have never installed wing tubes and am wondering if there is a resource somewhere that could show the proper way of setting these sockets up. It appears that there are 2 sockets indicated on each wing. What source to purchase wing sockets and tubes is recommended?
    Thanks,
    Bill
